  4. Smoke Alarm and Home Fire Safety Inspection. As part of its “Preventing the 9-1-1 Call” program, the Fire and Rescue Department will do a fire safety inspection and install a free smoke alarm in your home. Call 703-246-3801, TTY 711.
  5. Medicare Made Simpler. Learning the ins and outs of Medicare can be maddening; get help at one of our free information meetings or long list of resources.
